Kick your school supplies up a notch with washi tape!
I have another decorated USB flash drive project for you. I'm using washi tape to spiff up a flip around flash drive. This is an easy, quick, and cute way to identify your flip around flash drive from everyone else's flip around flash drive in school or in my case, the car.

We usually get a map from an amusement park, etc. when we are on vacation. How cool would this be if I used Amy's idea and made a lamp shade from them?

What are you getting Dad for Father's Day? #fathersdaygifts  #fathersday 
Father's Day is coming up. I'm stumped for good Father's Day gift ideas as usual. I've done all of the stereotypical gifts for Dads. Grilling gifts? Check; Golf and sports team gifts? Check. Pity doodads, ties, and cuff links Dad doesn't have much if any use for? Check, check, and double check!

Make one for Dad! #FathersDay #gift #ideas #DIYblogger
Unfortunately, I couldn't find a grill cover that was not made of vinyl. As a green gal I'm not thrilled with vinyl to put it nicely. And if I had to go with not environmentally friendly vinyl as a last resort I want one that is sturdy and last forever so I don't have to replace it because the ...

I didn't flatten the caps but you could if you want to. I have some with dents too. Most of the time, instead of poping the top off the bottle with the bottle opener, I rotate the bottle and slightly pull up with the bottle opener until the cap comes off without a dent.
I have a large bottle cap collection and it's all my Husband's fault. Shortly after we bought our condo and were enjoying our traditional TGIF bottle of craft beer he put the empty bottle into the recycling, looked at the cap and said, “It's a shame we have to toss the cap.

I grew up eating Thanksgiving cranberry sauce from a can. I figured cranberry sauce must be hard to make and that's why so many people buy the canned stuff. Nope. I learned just how easy it is to make cranberry sauce the year Husband and I threw a Thanksgiving dinner for some international grad ...
